I am proud today of my fellow Indians, we reclaimed Tiranga, we reclaimed Jan Gan Mann, we reclaimed Bharat Mata Ki Jai, we reclaimed Sare Jahaan Se Accha.

I am sure, WE will reclaim our beloved nation too, soon very soon.

There's no credible media outlet. So people are using social media to put out their own coverage of the protests.
This is India.

The fight for a India, is not a Muslim Indian's fight. It is basically a Indian's fight. My way of life accommodates, 33 crore deites and their devotees. It does not distinguish between followers of any God and knows that all paths lead to the one truth. We are all on this land as one family.
